Commerce & Industry

The resources and energy sectors have dominated demand for in-house legal services for some time and associated service providers in construction, engineering and projects/infrastructure have also consistently sought experienced lawyers over the last few years. Brisbane and Perth have enjoyed a wealth of in-house roles, often linked to the resources and energy sectors, and supply can often be an issue in these locations. Typically clients seek a strong background in corporate law and with at least 3 years post admission experience. Companies in more regulated industry sectors can sometimes seek relevant industry experience such as pharmaceuticals or telecommunications.
